This paper discusses the design to be used in the development of a high power, wide bandwidth, coherent 95 GHz instrumentation radar. The system design provids for operation of the radar in two separate transmitter modes; a moderate power, 100 Watt peak power mode using a state-of-the-art wideband TWTA with greater than 2 GHz of bandwidth and a high power, 1 kWatt peak power mode using a state-of-the-art EIKA. The radar will be polarzation agile and coherent frequency agile, making it possible to measure the complete polarization scattering matrix as a function of frequency and resolution.
